For context:

I think the whipped cream really helps cut through the strong alcohol taste, and >it also adds some fat, so give it a shot! (No pun intended…)

Do I need to put a period/full stop after the closing parenthesis? I tried this and feel it looks a bit off, but I'm not sure how else to change this sentence around.

  • You need four dots instead of three ... three form the ellipsis and one is the period for ending the sentence, although I don't think you distinguish them in any way.... See this online style guide. – Peter Shor Mar 6 '18 at 11:54
  • I don't get what is missing in the 'elipsis'. Nor do I get the pun. Maybe I'm slow, today. – Nigel J Mar 6 '18 at 15:14
  • The pun is about the alcohol in the recipe. I guess my question is whether "(No pun intended...)" can be left “floating” like that without a period at the end. "(No pun intended...)." looks weird to me – Paulina Maria Mar 6 '18 at 15:33
